Ken Melchert from Townsville City Council kicked off this afternoon’s presentations, discussing the role of GIS in assisting the key business functions within Townsville City Council to deliver their services to the community in an efficient, effective and innovative manner. Ken discussed the Council’s integration of their corporate GIS with other enterprise business management systems, and new strategies focused on mobile mapping, spatial network analysis and modelling, demographic and socio-economic modelling.
Next up, Gary Maguire and David Coombe from South Australia’s Department for Community and Social Inclusion showcased their Community Information Finder – MapIQ. For those who haven’t seen MapIQ, it’s a great application that allows the user to interact with community based information that is normally held in databases or digital documents.
Two really interesting presentations, and a great way to kick off Friday afternoon!
